In this tutorial we’ll learn how to setup a Just Cause 2 multiplayer server.
Please be sure the system is fully updated before we get started. Afterwards we’ll be creating a new user for the server. Make sure to use a password that is tough!
yum update -y adduser jcmp passwd jcmp
Let us also open the necessary firewall ports.
firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=7777/udp --permanent firewall-cmd --reload
Now we can install the required libs to run SteamCMD.
yum install glibc.i686 libstdc++.i686 -y
Switch to the user that we just created.
su jcmp cd ~
Time to download SteamCMD.
wget https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz tar xf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
Run SteamCMD and install the server files.
./steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +force_install_dir ./jcmp +app_update 261140 validate +quit
Upon success, the screen will read
Success! App '261140' fully installed..
Customizing The Server
Want to customize the name, description and also the slots of the server?
To change the name of your server, edit the file
To change the name of your server, go to line
28 and change
JC2-MP Server to your liking. I suggest that you change the
playercount and set an admin password also, to minimize the potential lag on your server, and to administrate it correctly.
When you’re done editing the config, rename it to
mv default_config.lua config.lua
Updating Your Server
When its time to update your server, because of Steam updates, there is an easy solution. First, create the file
Populate the following data.
login anonymous force_install_dir ./jcmp app_update 261140 quit
Now, to update your server, simply run the following command:
cd ~ ./steamcmd.sh +runscript update_jcmp.txt
Running Your Server
Navigate to the following folder and run your server.
cd /home/jcmp/jcmp screen -dmS jcmp ./Jcmp-Server
The server is now running in the background. To shut down the server, use the following command:
screen -S jcmp -X quit
And that’s it! Enjoy your server!
